Duplicating Events

Dragging an Item to Duplicate It

You can now duplicate items on the calendar simply by dragging them:

  1. Drag and Duplicate:
    • Hold down the Option key (Mac) or the Control key (Windows) before you click on the event and start dragging it.
  2. Edit Before Saving:
    • You’ll have the opportunity to edit the duplicated event before saving it.

This feature works for any native or custom object you can edit in DayBack. For example, you can use it to block off time for important tasks by creating "padding" tasks ahead of the main task, allowing you time to prepare. See video and important notes below.

Important Notes:

  • This duplication process doesn't do the same thing as duplicating a record natively in your original source, like Salesforce.
  • DayBack's drag-and-duplicate feature creates a new record with the same DayBack information as the original.
  • Unmapped fields (fields in your Salesforce or FileMaker object that aren't mapped to DayBack edit fields) will not be duplicated into the new item.
  • Therefore, this feature is best for simple objects where what you see in DayBack represents the whole object, such as events, tasks, or to-dos.
  • It works especially well in Google Calendar, where DayBack has access to every field from the original source.
